Does anyone else watch Brothers and Sisters? I thought last night's ep was brilliant, one of the best ever. Plenty of Walker craziness, lots of sweet moments, and good drama.

But I'm still traumatized by the last scene with Joe and Sarah. spoiler ) ::sobs::

Come on, Hugh, learn to throw your weight around like those Hollywood types!

Thompson Desperate for 'House' Role

Emma Thompson is desperate to land a role in U.S. series House alongside her ex-boyfriend Hugh Laurie. Thompson, who is married to fellow British star Greg Wise, dated Laurie in the early 1980s and the pair remain close pals. And the actor is keen to have his former love appear in his hit TV series. He says, "She (Thompson) genuinely does watch it. It obviously goes out in a different season in the U.K. but she does follow the show and likes it very much and would love to be on it." But Laurie insists he won't use his celebrity status to command cameo appearances from his wide circle of celebrity pals. He adds, "Obviously I would never feel I was in a position to treat this as some sort of club, where I can have... 'Oh, just mention my name. They'll let you in.'"

Did anyone else watch The Two Coreys? I was fully prepared for brain candy, for a stupid, silly trainwreck of a show, which it was a bit and I'm sure will be more so later. But I didn't expect it to be sad. In the first episode, I wasn't sure which Corey I felt worse for, but in the second, when Feldman sat Haim down and told him about the Lost Boys sequel, effectively crushing Corey Haim's hopes? Man. That was horrible.

I had a big crush on Corey Feldman back in the day, and it's kind of cool to see that he turned out okay in the end. He does nothing for me now, however.

Also, I could not love Flight of the Conchords more. If anyone finds an icon of Bret and Jemaine learning to flip the bird, please do let me know.

Hee hee

All you Who/Torchwood fans, go here for a super cute clip of John Barrowman choosing David Tennant for a shag.

PS. Is it just me, or does the guy with the glasses, Alan, remind you of Mr Humphries from Are You Being Served? Not just the, er, obvious, but as in, the voice, the face, the mannerisms, everything!

janiejones: ([hp] reading book 7)
Well, I've finished... And all I can say is that I am highly entertained at the mere thought of the fandom wank that is going to commence (and probably has already).

Not that I want to read it. Those people are scary.
janiejones: (roseanne laugh)
I was watching Access Hollywood this morning while I got ready. Apparently it was yesterday's ep, because it was Emmy day, and they were giving all the nominees plants for "going green."

Neil Patrick Harris: This is perfect for me! I even drive a Prius.

Access Hollywood: You do?

NPH: Yes! I named it Judas. Get it? Judas Prius!

janiejones: (psych banana)
We're off to see OotP in about an hour. I have HP on the brain; last night I actually dreamed about HP, like, more than once. Like a night of HP dreams, only one of which was that we all discovered book seven was not going to be the last book, but that we were going to have to wait several more years for a book eight.

I woke up in a cold sweat.


I saw a thing on Yahoo that said one-fifth of HP readers surveyed said they were going to skip to the last page of DH to find out if Harry lives or dies. I know I will be tempted to, but I cannot actually imagine myself doing so.

Only one more week!

Also, Psych is back! Yay!

Is anyone else watching Flight of the Conchords???

Please say you are. It is so awesome.
janiejones: ([vicar] hilarious)
Eeee! I just downloaded "Late at Night" by Buffalo Tom, aka the song that Buffalo Tom was playing at Pike Street when Jordan Catalano was totally rude to Angela, and then again later when JORDAN CATALANO, LIKE, TOTALLY HELD ANGELA CHASE'S HAND IN THE HALLWAY AT SCHOOL, in SLOW-MOTION, and I rewound that scene a hundred times, and my little 14-year-old self cried at the romance and angst of it all.

Ah, memories...

Happy birthday!!!

Happy birthday, dear [livejournal.com profile] zandras_court! I hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow (too bad you have to share it with Mr Court. hee). Thank you for being such an awesome, supportive friend.

I heard about this years ago, but nothing ever came of it, so I was hoping nothing ever would. But now...

From imdb today:

Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Eva Mendes, Jada Pinkett Smith, Debra Messing and Candice Bergen are teaming up for a remake of the 1939 classic 'The Women.' The cast members, who have either signed up for the movie or are on the verge of doing so, will be directed by Diane English, who has spent more than 10 years trying to get the project off the ground. Despite its all-star cast, 'The Women' has a budget of less than $20 million, reports Daily Variety. The 1939 original was directed by George Cukor and starred Norma Shearer and Joan Crawford.

It's not that I don't like some of those actors (although--Eva Mendes? Really?). But the thought of remaking 'The Women' is physically painful for me to contemplate. How can they hope to touch the delicious, wicked, clever cattiness of the original? I'm not against remakes necessarily, but I just think when it comes to the true classics, it should not be attempted.
